- Calcined Dunite use in refractory applications is not new in the market. Over several years since our mine is in operation, Pasek and other refractories suppliers have been successfully formulating basic mixes for tundish with Calcined Dunite percentages between 20 and 30%. Further advanced products with higher Dunite percentages are currently being successfully tested.
- The annual amount of Dunite that is being commercialized by Pasek for tundish mixes is currently at around 5,000 tons. This considerable yearly amount can be taken as a guarantee of good behaviour of the Dunite for refractory applications when properly formulated.
